5% chance when an ender pearl lands
Endermites have a 5% chance to spawn when an ender pearl lands when thrown by a player. The endermite spawns where the player threw the pearl, not where the pearl lands.
Endermites attack players (and iron golems[Bedrock Edition only]) within 16 blocks of them. If a mob attacks an endermite, any endermites in the area become hostile toward that mob. They can attack endermen when spawned with a spawn egg.[Bedrock Edition only]
Endermites despawn within 2 minutes, regardless of the player's distance from the endermite, except for when they have been named with a name tag.
Endermen attempt to kill endermites that spawn from ender pearls, or endermites that are spawned from spawn eggs.[Bedrock Edition only] In Java Edition 1.17[upcoming], Endermen attack all endermites 
Endermen can target an endermite from up to 64 blocks away.
